Sarah designed the logos for McKenna’s Grace and The Grace App. Her son attends USC School of Cinematic Arts as a Film and TV Production major and lived in the same freshman dorm with McKenna.
Formerly Senior Designer at University of Washington Creative + Communications, Sarah was responsible for designing materials for the full scope of UW administration, departments, schools, and colleges until 1997 when she founded her own small design business. She has enjoyed designing for her largely non-profit clients ever since, creating a wide range of materials in identity, print, branding, interactive media and illustration.
Sarah is also a screenwriter.
She has been hired to write several studio projects, including the thrillers Enigma for Focus Features, and Vengeance for Luc Besson’s EuropaCorp, which are both currently in development. Her spec script Dead of Winter was featured on the 2011 Black List and her most recent spec script, We of the Once Dead, made the 2017 Hit List. Additionally, Sarah was hired to write Home Invasion for Bad Robot and Paramount Pictures and the thriller Black Ice for MGM—an American remake of the award-winning Finnish film Musta Jää. Most recently, she wrote The Bride for Lionsgate with Chad and Carey Hayes, writers of The Conjuring franchise, producing.
Sarah is honored to have played a small role in helping bring awareness to the mental health crisis and suicide prevention on college campuses, and only wishes she’d had the chance to know beautiful McKenna.
